Trail Blazers interview Jimmer Fredette
This morning on one of the many blogs found on the Trail Blazers website was posted that Portland has sat down with BYU star and current top 10 draft pick Jimmer Fredette for the upcoming 2011 NBA Draft. Here’s what was posted by caseyholdahl:
“With so many premier players bypassing drills at predraft camp in recent years, the interviews have become an even more important part of this process for teams looking for an edge. And according to Fredette, the technological aspect of those sessions has been ramped up as well. When he met with the Trail Blazers, he was handed an iPad and asked to take a character test of sorts.
‘[It asked] what personality traits do you have, and you click the ones that people think, and the ones that you think [of yourself],” Fredette said. “It’s just to see what you’re like off the floor. They ask about family, childhood, what you would do in certain situations, do you consider yourself a point guard or a 2-guard? “They just ask you questions to see what your confidence level is, and how you interview, they want to see what type of person you are, if you’re confident and if they think you can be a leader.’
